Welcome to the Class 6 page. You will find some helpful reminders about what is happening in school on this page.
If you have any ideas about what else you would like to put on our page then please share them with me!

This term (Summer) the children will be attending swimming lessons as part of their PE curriculum. This will take place every Tuesday morning. Please ensure your child is prepared by providing them with the following kit:
Sensible swimming trunks/shorts (Not board shorts as they will hinder your child's swimming)
Swimming costume (No two piece costumes)
In addition, the children will take part in a PE lesson at school with our Sport Coach. This will take place every Friday afternoon. They will need a sports top, shorts and gym shoes or sensible trainers to take part in this lesson. Please allow your child to leave their entire kit in school throughout the week so that they are prepared.
Maths homework is given out every Tuesday and should be handed in on a Friday. In addition to the homework sheets that are given out your child also receives homework online via Education City. Search 'Education City.co.uk' in Google. Your child needs to use their normal school password to access the homework on the site. This also needs to be completed by Friday.
Topic homework is given out every Tuesday and should be handed in on a Friday. There will be three activities to choose from and only one needs to be completed. If your child wishes to do more this is absolutely fine and we would encourage them to do that. If any homework involves internet research and you do not have internet access please let us know so your child can access the internet in school to complete his or her homework.
Spelling homework is given out every Monday and children should practice all spellings throughout the week until their test on a Friday.
It is very important that your child reads as much as possible. We encourage you to read with your child at least three times a week and record this in their yellow Home Reading Records.
Please note that any homework given out is set specifically for your child. They will have worked on the topic/ spellings during the week and the homework is aimed to secure the skills and concepts they have looked at in lessons.
Half Term 5 - Summer (Current term)
This half term we are learning all about the history of The Roman Empire in our topic 'I am Warrior!'
Keep checking on the Class 6 page to see what we are working on.
Half Term 4 - Spring
This half term our topic was Road Trip USA!
The children took a journey through the history and geography of America. They looked at and identified different states, capitals and their features. The children learned about the impact of The Wright Brothers who invented the aeroplane and created some fantastic weaving patterns that are currently displayed in school.
It was wonderful to see the children taking part in outdoor activities such as making fires, spears, bows and arrows and shelters at The West View Project. They experienced some of the tasks Native Americans had to do to live in nature with great enthusiasm.
Half Term 3 - Spring
This half term we have moved onto the topic of Potions. The children took part in a Wow day and made slimey goo, bubbling potions, ice-lollies and artistic bubble pictures.
We are still working on our Potions topic and it has been really wonderful to see the amount of hard work that has gone into the children's homework tasks. Their work is currently displayed in school for everyone to see.
Half Term 2 - Autumn
Our topic was African Playlist and we started it off with an amazing drumming session. Paul, our teacher, taught us how to play tunes on a Djembe Drum and some people even had solos.
Miss Foster also helped the children by providing drumming lessons at lunch time. This meant the children could perform to parents and carers at our African Playlist Celebration Assembly. Everyone joined in with the singing and some children were very brave and spoke about our work in front of everyone.
It was a pleasure to see so many parents and carers attending the assembly. We thank you for your continued support.
Half Term 1 - Autumn
During this half term our topic was Burps, Bottoms and Bile! As you might have guessed, it was all about the human body. The children particularly enjoyed using disclosure tablets to find all of the plaque left over on their teeth from dinner time. Lots of their mouths turned a fantastic purple colour so they had to brush off the plaque straight away.
